Prime Materials Recovery, Inc. announces the contracting of an SCR 4500 copper rod system from the Southwire Company for installation at its subsidiary, IMC - Metals America, LLC in Shelby, N.C. This new line will be installed in a purpose-built plant at the existing site and will mark PMR/IMC's entry into the ETP copper rod market. 

In a separate initiative, IMC will also be increasing OF (oxygen-free) copper rod production capacity with the purchase and installation of a new line from Upcast OY based in Pori, Finland.

Sitework is expected to begin in the third quarter of 2023 and will bring 75-80 new jobs to Cleveland County, N.C.
